Let's talk about parkour, paragliding, wingsuit flying, freediving, cliff diving, skating, snowboarding, etc..! :)
My favourites are parkour, wingsuit flying, cliff diving and freediving.
I have found some amazing videos.

This is Storror parkour team coming from UK. (first two videos) And they are amazing!




This is also cool.

Na that's not the word I'm looking for, but I've asked him already and he calls it free-running. Parkour is probably the official word for it or something??

Yes, free-running and parkour are almost the same, namely free-running is just an upgrade.
Parkour can be described as connected movement with avoiding obstacles from A to B point as fast as possible, and free-running is more focused on doing tricks in the particular environment, but practitioners do not make any difference between those two. Almost every parkour practitioner will try doing some tricks like flips, etc when he gets skilled.

p.s. Some guys practice both parkour and free-running together so most of them think it's the same thing and i agree. Doing tricks without parkour is some kind of athletics for me.
Free-running may also look like an additional risk of getting hurt, but it's not. It's better to keep on some level of parkour and begin with tricks as an icing on the cake than to proceed with more extreme parkour such as jumping from very high objects, etc. Even if they don't get injured immediately, there is a limit which human's body can stand and passing that limit might damage it slowly, but permanently.

I like these parkour halls so much, but only few countries have that. They are much safer for practicing than outside places because floor is often covered by soft mats. And this design is also great.

Most of the parkour people I know dislikes them since you kinda expect the ground to be soft when doing it on asphalt :P
I'm grumpier than you.
